The quest goes on after Book 1: "Book of Pure Logic" ! Though it is a bit complicated for the 21st Century 'fatuous' mentalities, that I edit Book 2: "Another & Continued Book of Pure Logic"! As I cannot arrive openly to correct deductions with faulty data.

Imagination is the capacity to produce images, ideas and sensations in the mind without any immediate input of the senses (such as seeing or hearing). Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience and the learning process. A basic training for imagination is listening to storytelling (narrative), in which the exactness of the chosen words is the fundamental factor to "evoke worlds".
Imagination is a cognitive process used in mental functioning and sometimes used in conjunction with psychological imagery. The cognate term of mental imagery may be used in psychology for denoting the process of reviving in the mind recollections of objects formerly given in sense perception. Since this use of the term conflicts with that of ordinary language, some psychologists have preferred to describe this process as "imaging" or "imagery" or to speak of it as "reproductive" as opposed to "productive" or "constructive" imagination. Constructive imagination is further divided into voluntary top-down imagination driven by the prefrontal cortex, that is called mental synthesis, and spontaneous bottom up involuntary generation of novel images that occurs during dreaming. Imagined images, both novel and recalled, are seen with the "mind's eye".
Imagination can also be expressed through stories such as fairy tales or fantasies. Children often use such narratives and pretend play in order to exercise their imaginations. When children develop fantasy they play at two levels: first, they use role playing to act out what they have developed with their imagination, and at the second level they play again with their make-believe situation by acting as if what they have developed is an actual reality.

Thought encompasses a “goal oriented flow of ideas and associations that leads to a reality-oriented conclusion.” Although thinking is an activity of an existential value for humans, there is no consensus as to how it is defined or understood.
Because thought underlies many human actions and interactions, understanding its physical and metaphysical origins, processes, and effects has been a longstanding goal of many academic disciplines including linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, artificial intelligence, biology, sociology and cognitive science.
Thinking allows humans to make sense of, interpret, represent or model the world they experience, and to make predictions about that world. It is therefore helpful to an organism with needs, objectives, and desires as it makes plans or otherwise attempts to accomplish those goals.
Look up thought in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.
Thought is a mental process which allows beings to be conscious, make decisions, imagine and, in general, operate on symbols in a rational or irrational manner. It is an element/instance of thinking and is used as its synonym. Although more specifically, thought is technically the 'product' of thinking, it (thought) is usually derived through the action of thinking, representative of a cumulative result of the thinking process; although in many languages, thought and thinking are synonymous in everyday usage.
Known today as the "morals" of tinkering with human life and laboratory experiments beyond certain boundaries. I would doubt you would want a machine to somewhat think what was programmed in it's circuits, and may have the ability to think new thoughts/ideas, from a database archive increasing in knowledge. And have big necessary decisions to make between "good" and "evil/bad"!
But believe me it is as dangerous as it is, for us humans to have in our hands so much evil or to avoid it, as History clearly proves. Including the World Wars and Genocides, and ancient times. For a machine to be given these responsibilities or to even accidentally develop these capacities...!
Now in Evolution, regardless of learned good behaviors, what will happen or is permitted to happen is what Evolution is...! Meaning that when all is said and done, there are no final "responsibilities"...!
As even the Planet can be destroyed sooner or later, and our Sun's energy supply cannot go on for ever even if it is calculated to last millions of years more.
